€25,000 High Roller

Igor Kurganov is the Champion... Not!

Daniel Negreanu raised to 160,000 and after a slightly longer than normal dwell, Igor Kurganov made the call. The flop was {10-Diamonds} {10-Hearts} {9-Diamonds} and Negreanu pumped the pot up with a check-raise to 380,000 after Kurganov had bet 180,000. The ever calm Kurganov made the call and we moved to the turn. The dealer threw the {K-Diamonds} down and Kurganov bet 600,000. After a quick count Negreanu moved all-in and Kurganov called.

Kurganov{A-Hearts} {10-Clubs}
Negreanu{10-Spades} {8-Spades}

"It's a cooler...what a cooler," said Negreanu when he saw the cards of Kurganov.

Everybody crowded in around the table as Igor Kurganov was one card away from being crowned the High Roller Champion.

River: {K-Hearts}

"Chop it up," said a very calm Daniel Negreanu
